课时训练(二) Units 5-9 (七上)
Sally loved cars more than anything else. This spring she thought of building a go-kart to enter for the Go-Go Race. So she asked her dad for help.
“Well,” he said. “How about this: you do some research first and then come back to me with a design?”
A week later, Sally brought her notes and drawings to Dad. She named her go-kart “Blue Lightning”. Dad looked over her work, thinking. “Well, that's inter-esting,” he said. “Have a try. Just build Blue Lightning as you've designed.”
Over three weekends of hard work, Sally turned her design into a real, working go-kart and painted it light blue. Dad asked her to take it for a test drive. Sally agreed.
After she did that, Sally drove back to Dad. “Well,” she said. “Now I know why you wanted me to have a test drive.”
“Oh, do you?” he said. “Please share.”
“When I drove fast, there was a lot of pushback,” she said. “I think it's because of the lightning bolt(闪电) shape.”
“Very good!” Dad said.
“So, why didn't you tell me about that problem in the first place?” Sally asked.
Dad laughed. “Where's the fun in that? If you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. But if you teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a lifetime.”
Sally said, “I see. Anyway, designing is half the fun!”
Dad smiled. “Good. Sometimes, learning happens during the process. We learn how to do something right by doing it a few times first and making mistakes along the way.”
That encouraged Sally and she worked even harder. When she showed Dad her new go-kart, he nodded with pride.
Finally came the race. Sally wasn't worried about whether she would win—in her mind, she had already won, by building something better than ever before.

When I was little, my family used to move very often. Before I could even get to know my schoolmates well, my family was on the move again. I became very 1 because of this.
But a girl with dark skin and long shiny hair changed me. She is very outgoing and happy.
She is always smiling, like a beautiful sunflower following the sun. Without 2 , I enjoyed being with her and soon we became good friends. As time went by, I gradually became a 3 girl. But this joyful period didn't last long. We 4 different colleges. I felt like I had gone back to my always-on-the-move childhood. I felt 5 and helpless and I was afraid that I would 6 her as my best friend. She stayed calm and said to me, “Rain, you can achieve more than I do, so 7 to your dreams and make a big effort! Real friendship doesn't fade and we will be best friends forever.” Maybe she didn't realize what a great 8 she was to me at that time.
However, it turned out that my worries were well-founded. I felt that the 9 between us was getting bigger and bigger. One day, she sent me a text message happily telling me that she had fallen in love with a handsome boy in her class. I felt happy for her, but 10 I was secretly worried about our friendship. I 11 her several times to tell her to think carefully about her relationship with the boy, but I got no more messages from her. I felt sad that perhaps our friendship would die. I had almost given up hope 12 she visited me at my campus(校园) a week later. She looked weak 13 was wearing the most beautiful smile. She gave me a big hug and said, “I'm sorry. I want to be myself and your friend forever!” We cried together, 14 seeing the people walking past. She told me about her sad story, and we knew we had gone back to 15 it was before.
Now I strongly believe that distance and time can't separate you from a friend. If you care enough about each other, friendship never fades.
